Each and every week we scour news articles and Blue posts looking for this week’s Top 5 list! This week our Top 5 List comes from the Overwatch universe. We discovered a lot of salt pertaining tothe anouncement of Doomfist!
Top 5 Saltiest Doomfist comments
5.)Doomfist’s primary fire reloads while his other abilities are being used, including his quick melee. I don’t think any other hero functions this way.
4.)He’s slow all abilities are easy to dodge even his ult and shotgun fire isn’t hit scan so i don’t see him getting much play at higher level
3.) I speak for all of us when I say that we, the Overwatch community, are in agreement that we are disappointed with the casting of Sahr Ngaujah as Doomfist.
2.) I was really hoping Doomfist might be a good counter to the cancer that is the dive comp that is infecting this game but looking at his gameplay it doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon he looks like a perfect fit so we now we have Dva Winston and Doomfist to choose from oh joy…
1.) *To hear #1, listen to this week’s episode!*
BlizzCon general admission tickets have now all been sold out. Round 3 lasted just as long as the previous rounds, but that comes at no surprise to us! But know that even though they may be sold out, places like www.LFBlizzCon.com may have tickets being sold from time to time. So if you are still looking for tickets, check there first!
The video game culture in Korea is so much more advance than that in the United States. And they prove that by releasing an awesome StarCraft Remastered commercial! Words can not describe how awesome this is, so you just need to check it out for yourself!
This past week there was more big news out of Blizzard and the Hearthstone team. It was announced that we will be heading to Northrend in the next expansion called “Knights of the Frozen Throne!” Not only does it follow our favorite theme of frozen things, it also introduces new death knight hero cards which allow every player to become a Death Knight! Check out the announcement trailer here.
With the Necromancer being out for only a short period of time, it’s already been announced that the next season of Diablo will be starting on Thursday, July 20th, 2017. But the community is starting to wonder why there hasn’t been any patch notes, and why the download files are almost 2GB in capacity. What’s coming this season!? We aren’t sure either. But we hope it’s more EXPLODY!!!
The day has finally come…. Doomfist has been announced, revealed and talked about! His origin story was brought in a new art style, but it doesn’t fail to deliver more questions and more lore than every before! And with the announcement, we heard from Jeff Kaplan with another developer update talking about Doomfist and their strategy behind him.
But that wasn’t all we would get from Papa Jeff this week, he took the time to sit down and give us his humble opinion about class balance changes on the forums! Even though we may not agree with everything he had to say, we definitely appreciate him taking the time to give us a little insight and his opinion on the topic! Check it all out here.
This week we discussion the following topics about World of Warcraft:
1.) 8 out of 9 Mythic Tomb of Sargeras bosses have one shot mechanics, is Blizzard getting lazy with their game design?
2.) Things found on the PTR hint at the next World of Warcraft expansion. TINFOIL HAT TIME!
Each week we pick a game from the endless library of the Blizzard Arcade to test them out and help the listeners find some awesome stupidly fun games.
Game: The Last Generator Type: Survival Creator: Deathscyp Kilroy’s Review: “In this game you and 3 other players have 35 minutes to defend a base with limited resources and a limited army. This game requires a ton of strategy and is very challenging to complete as the rate at which you gather materials is very slow. Each person is given a corner to defend as the core is constantly under siege by infested that come in waves. Unfortunately there is no native AI for your team so you will have to work 4 times as hard to accomplish a win. If you are looking for a game that will take 35 minutes to win then this is your game if not this game may not be best for you.”
